Baby Fever...

No, I'm not pregnant! But I happen to know a ton of people who are right now, and I've been on overdrive in the idea department with shower favors and such. So much so that when I saw this MM circular ledger paper with the pretty scallops, it reminded me of a baby's bib...I used a small bowl as a template to cut out the neck area. I used a fun striped ribbon from Michael's to add some pattern. I cropped 2 photos of my daughter when she was 9 months old, and inked up the areas you see in the layout. I used a punch to do the holes in the scallops...
I added the MM velvet alphas in peach and pink, and then put Bazzill blossoms on for a girlie touch. It came together in a snap! I also doodled along the letters and the edge of the paper.
I plan on making a "Welcome to the baby shower" sign for the front door for my sweet neighbor who is doing a shower this weekend with this one...but it could just as easily be used for a boy layout...
I wanted to mention a few housekeeping items. The re-order for the April Main kit is now sold out again. There are a few of the April Project kits left if you are interested in those. The newsletters for both kits will be sent via email to customers who purchased the kits on April 1st. Thank you to all who got one this month! The subscription option has definitely turned out to be a positive experience!

For you local gals, a sweet gal by the name of Laura Manning is doing a fundraiser crop called Crop for a Cure.
The crop will be April 20th, from 9am-6pm in Lorain at Rosewood Place on Oberlin Avenue. The cost is $45.00 and includes food, snacks, beverages, door prizes, a Chinese raffle, and plenty of work space. Anyone interested can contact Laura at sunnygirl0925@gmail.com for more information or to purchase tickets!!

I've had a really wonderful response to the Fall Retreat at the Bertram Inn, and I've had several people sign up already. I will be posting more details about the weekend on the website, but I've hesitated because the contract isn't going to be official until tomorrow. If you would like to email me specific questions or want a flyer emailed to you, please email me at Turay413@gmail.com. I am going to continue to take reservations and keep you updated right here!

Have a super Friday!
